post #31 of 55
Yea, your not a real tree skier until yiu've eaten wood. Been there, done that.

Even at Okemo, remember the whole mountain is open. There are some good places that are not on the map.

Not just any buffalo burgers... "Vermont" buffalo burgers! Topped with Vermont maple syrup and Vermont's Cabot cheese! Nothing taste better than having a glass of Vermont apple juice with the burger and finishing it off with Vermont's Ben and Jerry's ice cream. It will leave you with a Vermont smile on your face.

, but your not coming south, and it wont seem like much if you ski most of the time in vermont. Killington's trees can be nice skiing depending on the snow, I did my first ones there at 6, on accident.

Tee hee...I am not a real Vermontah (ask any real Vermontah and they will tell you that, fer sure) so I don't know about that one. I wonder if it's just us non-Vermontah's who think of uses like that?

Just don't be surprised to see maple syrup instead of sugar put in coffee (makes for an interesting consistency); syrup on eggs; syrup on mashed potatoes; syrup on shepherd's pie....

We hit Supernova at Okemo last year and it was just perfect. Okemos glades aren't the hardest on the east, but sure can be fun.

RossiFreerider is lying. There are no glades at Jay. Jay is above treeline. It's just one big open bowl. No challenge whatsoever. He must be thinking of some other mountain.

Stowe

Are there any unmarked glades at Stowe I should look for on a powder day?

Hey Thatsagirl-

Q: How many true Vermonters does it take to change a light bulb?

A: Three - one to change the light bulb and two to reminisce about how nice the old light bulb was.

Another question- can you access most of the glades to the north of the tram from the new high speed chair that replaced the green double? I used to ski Jay quite a bit fifteen years ago but I haven't been there much lately. I know there's some glades south of the Jet triple, too.

Jeezum crow, my wife's from Newport so i know all about Vermonters.

Not much legal glade skiing in NY State due to the lousy liability laws, but unofficial glades in NY can be found at any area if you're nice to a local, but not this year.
The best glade skiing in the east that I know of is (shhh, don't tell anybody) Jay Peak. When I ski there, I almost never ski on trail. Practically the entire place is glades, with some treeless spaces in between (trails). Closer to home, there's some OK glades on Mt. Snow's North Face, but I doubt they're open this year. Killington has some great glades if you know a local, good glades if you go by a trail map, also very weak this year. MRG has excellent glades, except on 3-12 weekend, when I heard it's gonna smell real bad from all the tele skiers. Haven't been to Stowe since before glades were invented. (1998)

Nope. No need to hook up with someone that knows the place.


Buffalo burgers are awesome. It tastes different than beef, but it's equally good. It's just a matter of what you're in the mood for. It's much leaner than beef, it's actually leaner than turkey. By far the biggest flavor to fat ratio of any meat. O'Natural's (yuppy organic fast food place) has a buffalo meatloaf sandwich that's out of this world.

Woods and Glades are not the same.

Glades are trails with trees, but the trees are larger and the small stuff is removed. Woods are dense and full of all sorts of stumps, rocks, roots, brush, troublesome saplings and other crap. Glades are refined while woods are primitive. Glades have always been on the map. Woods have not - now there are fusion zones.

Magic has one glade that is great. There really is not much in the way of tree skiing. Hell, this year there is not much in the way of skiing in general.

Mt Snow does have some tree skiing. Stratton has some too but I would never go there.

Killington has lots of tree skiing but none compares to Northern Vt. I was in the woods Sunday and it was real fun with lots of sparks from the edges.

The reason southern Vt does not have more tree skiing is lack of snow. There is no snow making in the woods - Northern Vermont gets more snow.

I disagree. What southern vermont really lacks are sustained pitches. Glades are pretty boring if they're not at least a little bit steep (since you can't go fast). Cannon for instance gets less snow than southern vermont, and granted its glades aren't open very often, but they're way better than anything mount snow, okemo, or stratton has to offer. That's because Cannon has some sustained pitches.

Funny joke!

The new high-speed quad has really changed the way you ski the mountain. You can reach Beaver Pond, Beyond Beaver Pond (now called Andre's Paradise), Spuds, Dog Patch, Everglade and various other unofficial woods in that area by the chair. Now, most people only use the Tram to access Big Jay, Valhalla, Green Beret, Radio Shack and other unofficial woods near the summit (and Tucks and the Face when they are open).

Hello, new to Barking Bear have been lurking for a few days....totally agree w/ Whiteroom re: Stowe:

Quote:
I'm serious, the people are MEAN! They'll ski over your topsheets and push you down to get ahead of you in the long long liftlines. Heck the lifts don't even go to the top of the mountain. They don't let you sleep in, the lifts spin at 7:30 on weekends.There are only 48 trails, whats Killington got, 200?? NO Comparison. The town is UGLY also, strip malls and development everywhere...
Mean people everywhere scraping around in the lousy snow last wkd. And glades? They don't even have trees anymore since Home Depot moved Williston. Especically none beyond the bench...

That said, favorite (marked) glades in VT:
Paradise, Lynx @ MRG
Doc Dempsey @ Smuggs
Nosedive/bypass glades @ Stowe
Castlerock @ SB South
